Reading some of these comments makes me wish that Cloud City thing from Star Wars 4 was a thing. In fact it would be cool to see something like that happen on Venus..

Is Bespin in over a planet or is it in some sort space cloud?

I don't know and I completely forgot that's what it's called.

If its not above a Venus style planet or even a gas giant lets pretend it is.

They where cloud mining if I remember right.

Wookiepedia says that it was a gas planet and they were in fact cloud mining. Could something like this be done to Venus?

EDIT: Just skimmed the article to see if it was a gas giant, which I think it might be.

Living in cloud cities yes profitable mining prolly not. The venusian is nearly all Co2 the rest is N with traces of H2SO4 and Sulfur.
